The arms of Innsbruck are canting, showing a bridge (Brücke) over the Inn river. The oldest known use of the arms dates from a seal of 1267. Both the bridge and the river were shown rather differntly than at present. The present composition is used since 1325. The colours are known since 1547 and the arms thus have never changed since.
